About the restaurant
Make it a day to remember. From birthdays and anniversaries to professional milestones, we aim to make every gathering special at The Capital Grille. Open seven days a week, The Capital Grille is best known for our expertly prepared steaks, which are dry aged in house for 18 to 24 days and then hand-cut by our restaurant's on-premise butcher. The Capital Grille's wine list features more than 350 selections, and its floor-to-ceiling wine kiosk regularly houses 3,500 - 5,000 bottles. Reservations are recommended but not required. For more information, please visit our website. We look forward to delighting you.

We went for a birthday dinner right after a matinee performance at the Eccles. Outstanding food and service but be prepared to pay for it appropriately. Excellent wine selection. Filet prepared to perfection. Seared scallop appetizer special that day was to die for. The servers and waiter were right on top of things-never had to ask. Highly recommended for a special occasion.

About the restaurant
VENETO is a dining experience that brings to life the history, culture, and traditions of a region in Northeastern Italy. It's a warm, enlightening setting that leaves bodies, minds, and spirits nourished through quality, handmade cuisine — best shared in good company, with love.

Our menu honors year-round classical favorites and seasonal specialties from the region of Veneto, with ingredients coming from Italy and the finest local purveyors. But it's the experience around those elements that you won't forget.

Being at VENETO is like being in Amy & Marco's home. It's a warm, inviting environment curated with one-of-a-kind antique European furniture and accessories, from the hundreds-year old Italian sofa in the dining room to the Italian marble in the restrooms. We want you comfortable, relaxed, and immersed in Italian culture as you ponder the menu, soak up new knowledge, and enjoy inspired conversation along the way.

All though I do not live in Utah I have managed to eat at VENETO 3 times this winter and I am planning to come back in a few days to try their March version of the tasting menu.

About the restaurant
YUTA is the signature restaurant of The Lodge at Blue Sky, which features authentic flavors inspired by indigenous ingredients and breathtaking views.

Directions: Please note that the address found on OpenTable will try to lead you though Tollgate/Promontory, Exit 150, DO NOT take this exit. Instead, continue to Exit 155 for Wanship, Google Maps will reroute and lead you to our gatehouse. From there you will drive up the hill, pass High West, until you see The Lodge. We currently do not offer transportation services. We suggest pre-arranging departure transportation prior to your reservation, as ride shares are difficult to arrange from the Lodge. We also allow guests to bring in their own wines for a Corkage Fee. The fee itself is $35 per bottle and up to 2 bottles maximum.

Excellent experience. All the staff were wonderful, happy, relaxed, efficient and attentive to my wife’s birthday. The Chef deserves special attention as the Salmon and steak were perfection. Price matched the quality of the experience.

There was a big convention in town, so I’m glad we made reservations on OpenTable. Bucca is a fun place to celebrate. The tiramisu was a great way to end a good meal.
